Sunday Seniors on the Move and Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s day to all the dads in the world. My husband and I spent the afternoon with our two daughters and two granddaughters. I miss my father terribly.  I think of  him every time I see a cardinal eating out of the bird feeder on the front porch.

It’s always a good idea to tell your doctor about any exercise you begin, especially if you have pre-existing health problems. This article from SparkPeople.com discusses the importance of building cardio health. Begin slowly and work your way up to a more rigorous routine once you know what your heart can handle.

  1. Thanks Nancy, I almost didn’t get that one done, and when I read through it just now, I caught a couple errors I had to fix. My husband and I kept the grandkids last night… whew! God knew what he was doing when he made us parents at a young age.
